American Express Exclusive Access is Now Open for All Canadians

By now, you’ve probably heard all about the exclusive perks that come with being an American Express (Amex) Cardmember.

Over the past 26 years, Amex has provided Cardmembers with early access to the best entertainment experiences.

If you’re a Cardmember yourself, you’ve probably taken advantage of the Front of the Line  presale access to concerts, exclusive dining events, and advance film screenings. We at have been lucky enough to sample some of these memorable exclusive experiences.

And the good news is, you now can too, whether you’re a Cardmember or not!

Amex Canada has now opened its doors to all Canadians, allowing them a one-time opportunity to experience the benefits American Express Invites has to offer.

All Canadians who visit and provide their email address will be given a promotional code for a chance to attend the hottest and coolest events in film and dining.

In other words, you have a new way to impress your friends, family and dates.

Case-in-point: you could get to experience things like early access to some of the world’s most highly anticipated films. We were lucky enough to hit the TIFF Bell Lightbox on Wednesday, November 18 for the advance screening of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 – two days before it opened to the public.


We joined other Amex Cardmembers and winners in the packed theatre – but not without scooping up a complimentary bag of popcorn (so necessary) and a bottle of pop to wash it down. Thanks to a well-graced step-and-repeat, there was no shortage of popcorn-filled photo opps either.

And yes, we managed to not ruin the film’s surprises for those who had to wait to see it.

If you missed out, Amex will unlock some great dining events this fall – think of it as your exclusive reservation at that restaurant everyone’s talking about. In fact, if you’re looking for you chance to test out Cardmember perks, you can! Head over to to be entered for a chance to attend an exclusive premium dining event at one of Canada’s top 10 Best New Restaurants list as determined by Air Canada enRoute Magazine, featuring a prix fixe menu created by an award-winning chef. The giveaway for Toronto starts on November 26, 2015 and closes on December 6, 2015. The event will take place at Bar Raval on December 14, 2015
